Skins to include 'most graphic sex scene'

The new series of 'Skins' is to feature its "most graphic sex scene".

Actress Laya Lewis - who plays party animal Liv in the fifth season of the E4 teen drama - admitted she is terrified at the prospect of watching the "full-on" episode with her parents, as producers have warned her the finished product is like nothing seen on TV before.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Put it this way, I will be leaving the room when this scene comes on if I'm with my parents. The producers have already told me it's the most full-on sex scene 'Skins' has ever had. I'm a bit worried to be honest."

However, Laya - who won the part when producers visited her school in Bristol - explained she got used to getting naked on the show, as her wild 'Skins' alter-ego is a bit of a "s**g", and she was forced to simulate an orgasm on her second day on set.

She added: "I had to do lots of nude scenes because my character is a bit of a s**g basically. But you're really well looked after and obviously you don't see any bum or boobs or anything. It's nerve-wracking at first but when you get used to it and embrace it it's actually quite fun.

"I had to get naked on my second day! I didn't even know I was doing it, I thought it was just going to be a bit of rumpy-pumpy, not a full-on sex scene. The next thing I'm hearing from the director is, 'In 15 seconds, Laya, we'd like you to climax'. I was like, 'Sorry, what?'"
